Not too long ago, I purchased an odd looking Spellbinder die called Gold Majestic Circle. At the time I was not sure what I would do with it, but it looked like an unusual frame to me, so I knew that somewhere down the road I would find a use for it. Soon afterwards, I saw a new paper pack called Uncharted by Paper Studio. This 12 x 12 pack is made up of antique maps redefined, some in colorful hues. I decided to use the maps as a background for a card showcasing Elizabeth in the Spellbinder die. I then went looking for images, and spotted this artistic version, that although very idealized, is perfect as a card.
This is one of those "just because" cards, since it's not really meant for any special occasion, like a birthday, for example. I look at it as perhaps an empowerment card for someone that needs a little confidence or push in the right direction.
I made two versions, each with a different background. The sentiment stamped inside is:
"There was a world and
I was Queen
A world where I created
all things seen"
I can't think of a better way to describe Elizabeth I. It truly says it all.
